The "back stage" of Disneyland was always fun to explore, especially early in the wee hours with no fun seekers in the way. Going into costume houses with my stylist friends always gave me a little thrill when I would spy something worn by Vivian Leigh or Charlie Chaplin.
And I always loved going into peoples personal spaces, homes, back rooms. You know how people rent their houses out to production companies to shoot commercials? Well I have a particular fondness for looking at old architectural details, floor plans, wall paper... I wonder why they made that choice, where they got that thing, how they could have painted anything that color!
I like snooping through open houses. So did my Dad. He and his wife would intentionally drive around on Sundays looking for For Sale signs. Like Daddy - like daughter.
And I still get a boost looking into other peoples lives. I bought a vase from a great ceramist named Whitney Smith a little while ago and just discovered that she's made a video of her dry throwing technique. A little look into the work methods of an artist I admire. What could be better for my voyeuristic tendencies! And I thought I'd share with you too. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
